More signiﬁcant to the nature of the character, however, is the necessity that Robin must feel something like the loss that Wayne experienced in order to identify fully with Batman’s gothic sensibilities. The Dark Knight Returns handles these issues in a very interesting way. 32 Part One: The Ethics and Anarchy of Batman Carrie Kelly is only symbolically orphaned by parents who seem too selfinvolved (and too high) to raise their daughter. In “The Dark Knight of Democracy,” Tim Blackmore argues that Kelly’s parents represent “today’s ‘nostalgic’ hippies” (43).

Now, you wanna get nuts!?! Come on! ” The viewer is left wondering just how much of Wayne’s challenge to the Joker is posturing so that the Joker won’t punish Vickie and how much of it is a peek into the psychological state this is always present, but generally repressed behind either a façade of gentility (as Wayne) or the mask of the vigilante.
